CUMMING, Ga. — After shopping, a man returned to his car to find a bag full of Christmas gifts gone, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.
On Dec. 23, a man in the 1200 block of Old Alpharetta Road told deputies between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., someone entered his car while he was at work and stole a bag of gifts.
He said an engagement ring, diamond earrings, e-reader, an iPad and more items were inside the missing bag. He said all the items totaled $6,700.
Deputies said the car did not appear to have been forced into, and nothing else in the car appeared to have been looked through or missing.

Maybe a scam?

I have a thought, since the auto "appeared" to have no forced entry points...maybe, just maybe the victim had real good insurance coverage, and we'll all get to share in the recovery of his "gifts" by paying higher insurance rates! You don't need to live near the water to think something smells fishy here!

Like the good Col. above said: no sign of forced entry (like a broken window or car lock), and no sign of additional rummaging. The two just doesn't add up compared to evidence of typical car break-ins.
And another thing: if I spend nearly $7K on "gifts" including diamond jewelry, the absolute last thing I'd do is keep them in my car at work in a "Christmas" shopping bag in full view. At the very least I'd put them in the trunk.
Finally, I might have given slight credence to the story had the guy gone shopping on his lunch hour and returned to work thinking his car was safe for the rest of the day. Perhaps someone watched his purchases and followed him. But considering he parked all day at work 7A-5P, again, it just doesn't add up.
